COMIC REEL: Guggenheim Wants Constantine On “Arrow”; Deadpool Attacks Mario Lopez In New Pic

ARROW

In an interview with Variety, “Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that “there’s a lot of desire on everyone’s part” to add Constantine to the shared DC TV universe following the cancellation of the character’s NBC series.

“It would be wonderful and we certainly have a million ideas — it’s hard for me to say mainly because A: it’s not my decision to make and B: with ‘Constantine’ being shopped around to other networks… it’s really hard to make plans when a show’s kind of in limbo,” said Guggenheim. He added that “a lot of the pieces are in place, except for that one final piece, which is: what’s the fate of ‘Constantine’? That’s the tricky thing. But it comes up in the writers’ room constantly — we have a number of ideas, one idea that’s particularly exciting to me. We’re in a little bit of a wait-and-see mode, like you guys are.”

The CW has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette spotlighting Team Arrow’s throwdown against the League.

With the season coming to a close, the network has also released what is most likely the final “Superhero Fight Club” poster for “Arrow,” which features Matt Nable’s Ra’s al Ghul.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

To celebrate the start of production on AMC’s “Walking Dead” spinoff “Fear The Walking Dead,” the network has released a pair of videos that give a sneak peek into the world of the original series. Fans can check out a teaser for the show that frames the impending zombie apocalypse as a small virus outbreak reported to the masses via a radio spot. Additionally, a behind-the-scenes look at the series has also been posted, which features footage from the show’s Vancouver set and interviews with the show’s executive producers.

AMC has also released a statement about the start of production, which includes comments from executive producers Robert Kirkman and Dan Erickson.

“‘Fear the Walking Dead’ takes us back to the earlier, more dangerous, more terrifying days of ‘The Walking Dead,'” said Kirkman in the release. “A time when danger was lurking around every corner and the thing mostly likely to get you killed was your own ignorance of the rapidly changing world around you. The stakes are going to be higher and the ride more intense. We’re going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through. Buckle up.”

“I could not be more thrilled to be continuing on this apocalyptic journey, dramatizing the horrific disintegration of society through the lens of a dysfunctional family. We’ve assembled a stellar cast and crew to tell our story — it’s going to be a great ride,” added Erickson.

SUPERGIRL

Digital Spy caught up with “Homeland” actor and upcoming “Supergirl” co-star David Harewood and asked him how it feels to be playing Hank Henshaw — a character from the comics also known as the cyborg Superman.

“People always ask me that question, and at the end of the day you’ve got to bring it to life, and you’ve got to bring it to life the best way you think is fit… I’ve taken a lot of hints and clues from what people have said about him, and done a lot of background reading and I’ve put that together… He’s a pretty ‘gruff’ guy — I’m hoping he’s entertaining, but also… frightening.”

Harewood also had a few comments about series lead Melissa Benoist, who plays Supergirl. “I think she’s going to be a fantastic Supergirl,” said Harewood. “I’ve got two little girls, and I think they’re going to be tremendously excited when they see Supergirl flying and kicking serious butt.”
